Course Description

Learning the various aspects of network communications hardware and
software is vital to anyone working in a server environment. Use this theory and practice-based course to get a grip on configuring virtual networks and virtual network interface cards (NICs).

Explore how network communications hardware and software map to the OSI model. Identify different types of communication networks such as LAN and VLAN. Then, learn how network switching and network routing work.

Moving on, practice deploying a hypervisor virtual network. Next, practice configuring IP routing in the cloud and virtual network peering. Then, identify various types of NICs and cables. And finally, practice configuring on-premises and cloud-based virtual machine NICs.

Upon completion, you'll be able to identify various network models and configure virtual networks and virtual NICs. You'll also be a step closer to being prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.
